We all deserve to have our voices heard; our faces and experiences reflected in culture and media; and our unique needs addressed through relevant policies. To achieve this goal, it is critical that we consider intersectionality. This concept highlights the fact that aspects of our identities (i.e., gender, race, sexual orientation, ability status, etc.) cannot be examined in isolation from one another and that, together, these features intersect to shape our individual experience.
When we fail to incorporate intersectionality into our everyday practices and policies, we leave parts of our communities behind. In this political climate marked by division and anxiety, it’s important for us to work together to incorporate and acknowledge different communities' experiences within our culture, policies, media, and healthcare system, as well as all other critical areas that impact health and well-being.
